Dulari provoke villagers to punish Aditya. They are about to beat Adi when Meethi comes to his rescue and shoos them away. Adi tries to touch her feet. She stops him and says if she cannot curse him, she cannot even bless him; she is Seeta maiya’s devotee and cannot see even her enemy in trouble; now he should go his way and she will her way. Adi leaves. Meethi confronts Dulari for trying to harm Adi. Dulari gets angry and asks her to think about her daughter. Adi meets terrorist Aatank’s aide Chand and asks him to fix a meeting with him. Chand says Aatank doesn’t meet anyone so easily.
Meethi calls Imlie and informs her about Aditya reaching there safely. Imlie asks her to keep an eye on him and protect him till he is there. Adi tells Chand that he will not take monster Aatank’s story but will take interview of the people who are troubled by Aatank. He calls them in for interview. In Delhi, Imlie asks news broadcaster to show show Pagdandiya/PGD’s news feed. He forwards her Aditya’s news feed.
Imlie watches it, walks to Aryan and asks what is he trying to do as PGD people hate terrorists and city people, so he will create trouble Aditya if he lets him divert from his topic. She shows villagers’ interview clip. Aryan says he is not here for charity, their company will be in profits if Aditya brings terrorists interview in 24 hours or else Aditya will fail in his assignment. Imlie says he will not fail and walks away. Aryan thinks she trusts Aditya even now, but her trust will break with Aditya’s blood.
Meethi brings food for Aditya. Aditya asks if she doesn’t hate him. She says terrorism, hate, divorce are heavy words and she cannot carry their burden as she needs to carry her daughter’s pain; he is not her SIL but PGD’s guest now, she is still her daughter’s mother and is concerned for her. Chand informs Adi that Aatank had called and agreed for interview but needs a precious thing from him. Adi gives his watch. Meethi asks if its same watch which he had gifted Imlie. He says yes, Imlie returned everything.
Radha asks Aparna to give her someone’s number and takes her along. Malini waits for Aditya’s call and thinks he will call at Aparna’s phone at least. Arpita calls on Aparna’s number and invites T family to new year Bhaskar Times launch party at her house. Malini thinks its a good chance to pester Imlie. She returns Aparna’s phone and informs her about Narmada’s call inviting them for new year party. Aparna asks if Adi had called her. Malini says no and walks away. Aparna thinks why she seems so relaxed.
Imlie’s colleague asks another colleague to pass on a duster. Imlie passes by and duster is about to hit her when Aryan holds it and warns her to be careful. She says she was coming to him as Aditya has sent a news feed before 24 hours. Aryan says he is interested in checking footage and check if Aditya covered in an interesting way. She says Aatank is a dreaded criminal who can harm Aditya. Aryan says Aditya himself chose this assignment, he is bothered about company’s profits first and then Aditya’s life. She says he should renamed himself as money printing machine instead of Aryan. Employee informs him that live feed from PGD has started.
They watch Aditya’s live interview where Adi first asks if he is wearing a designer mask as his boss is interested to know. Imlie thinks why Aditya is trying an impossible task. Adi asks his motto. Aatank says he needs justice from system and a separate land for himself where he can freely administrate. Aditya says Satyakam never demanded a separate land.
Aatank says Satyakam followed his set rules and hence now he is in jail, Satyakam wrongly trusted Aditya and is in trouble now. Imlie fumes and thinks if she is allowed to go there, she will teach him the difference between terrorism and revolution. Aditya asks if he is promoting terrorism or revolution. Aatank says whatever he thinks, he will destroy everything if his demands are not met. News feed goes blank. Technician informs Aryan that Aatank’s men must have disconnected. Imlie thinks Aatank doesn’t seem to be from PGD, then why he is taking PGD’s name.
Meethi returns home. Dulari confronts her for meeting her ex-SIL Aditya. Villagers says they will not let her give even a drop of water to Aditya. Meethi asks if she should let a guest be hungry. They say they don’t care as city people come and ruin their village. Meethi says Aditya is helping them. They allege that her daughter must be pregnant like her and will bear an illegitimate child like her. She warns to dare not speak about her daughter. They pick stone to hit her. Dulari rescues her and shoos them away. She feels concerned about Iklie.
Precap: Aditya falls unconscious in a dilapidated state. Aatank walks to him.
